Rail Legal Services
A cross government collaborative agreement for rail legal services used by the Department for Transport (DfT) and related organisation with a significant programme of rail franchises, major works and projects that need specialist rail legal services. Parliamentary agents may also be needed.
CCS will work in partnership with DfT to establish a panel that will:
- provide a more focused agreement to give the market greater aggregation of work
- ready access to highly experienced and specialised rail legal advisers
- increase value for money through choice and competition
- minimise the time and administrative burden to contract work
The lotting structure of this agreement will be determined as a result of the market engagement.
This agreement is designed to replace Rail Legal Services (RM3756), which will be extended to 31 March 2022.
We have engaged with key customers through a mix of face to face sessions and conference calls ahead of the tender issue. We are working closely with DfT as the key stakeholder.
We held supplier engagement sessions in April and early August 2021.
